1.0 out of 5 stars Will The Real Linkin Park Please Stand Up?, September 14, 2010
This review is from: A Thousand Suns [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Congratulations Linkin Park! You just wiped off half your fanbase,

I remember the good ol' days when Hybrid Theory came out and LP was all over the TV, radio, shows, and when everyone was jamming to their music. Then Meteora came out, another rock solid album. They were at the top and hardly anyone had any complaints about their music - I still remember how awesome it was to speed in my car with their songs at max volume when I was a teenager. However few years ago, Minutes to Midnight came out, which was somewhat mediocre - some songs were a throwback to the older albums while some were just plain shocking - I felt as if I was listening to The Fray and All American Rejects; nevertheless, it was still a decent CD that was worth the money. They rolled downhill with Minutes To Midnight and they literally fell off the cliff with Thousand Suns.

This CD is extremely disappointing and the only good song that I really like is The Catalyst (I love the live version at MTV's VMAs). Don't bother with the rest because it is pure garbage and it will make your ears bleed. I don't care if the lyrics are good when the song itself isn't. Those of you who are saying that this is a masterpiece, I assume you are post Meteora fans because that is the only reasonable way to explain this. Honestly, I think that this album should have been named "Epic Fail."

The change from NuMetal to technorock I guess is shocking. It's like Eminem releasing a metal CD.

I'm sorry Linkin Park, I am no longer your fan.
